IT IS A MUST AND IT IS NECESSARY = I CANNOT ESCAPE ITTHE POSSIBILITY OF MY

ABSOLUTE IMPOSSIBILITY

ANXIETY = DREAD = INDETERMINATE

FEAR IS DETERMINATE

CAN WE EXPERIENCE THE TRANSITION FROM DASEIN

TO NON-DASEIN?

Page 8: IMPENDING DOOM?

“THEY”

OUR FIRST EXPERIENCE OF DEATH?

DEATH OF OTHERS

We never experienced the death of another as he himself experienced it

DEATH IS ALWAYS MINE

Page 9: IMPENDING DOOM?

“THEY” CAUSES

INAUTHENTICITY TO DASEIN

HIDES DEATH DEATH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US

SOMETHING NOT YET AT HAND

OFFERS NO THREAT

INAUTHENTIC DASEIN

BEING TOWARDS DEATH AND CAREExistence, in the ‘ahead-of-itself’Facticity, in the ‘being-already-in’Falling, in the ‘being-alongside’

EVERYDAY BEING-TOWARDS-DEATH-INAUTHENTICITY

AUTHENTIC BEING TOWARDS DEATH

Page 13: IMPENDING DOOM?

Care has the following characteristics of Dasein’s being1. Existence, in the ‘ahead-of-

itself’ (FUTURE)Death as something impending: the possibility of being cut off

from others and from things.something that I cannot outstrip

2. Facticity, in the ‘being-already-in’ (PRESENT)

revealed only in the basic mood of man = anxiety (indeterminate)

3. Falling, in the ‘being-alongside’ (FUTURE)

Many are ignorant of deathFleeing in the face of death:

concealment

ANNIE NIELSEN: BEING TOWARDS DEATH AND CAREExistence, in the ‘ahead-of-itself’?

Facticity, in the ‘being-already-in’?

Falling, in the ‘being-alongside’ ?

Page 15: IMPENDING DOOM?

The ‘they’: hides deathnot yet present-at-hand, therefore offers no threatDenial of certaintyHe loses himself in the

‘they’Anxiety in the face of death

is taken as a sign of :weaknessman is constantly

evading death

EVERYDAY BEING-TOWARDS-DEATH-INAUTHENTICITY

Page 16: IMPENDING DOOM?

Response to death Not evasion as imposed by the ‘they’

Facing this possibility of death = SUICIDE? Facing is not actualizing! suicide demolishes all the potentialities of

man Authentic means:

Anticipation of death’s certainty provide us with ‘vision’/ understanding

‘carpe diem’ Vision = present existence vs. potential

possiblities mind that is open to the constant threat of

anxiety What to do with the ‘they’?

death does not belong to everybody, but to one’s own self

Being-with-others (solicitude) NON-RELATIONAL = SEPARATION

FROM THE “THEY” = FREEDOM TO BE WHATEVER HE WANTS TO BE
